Could this be a style in “Formats > Text Style “? I currently use text but there are others working on the sites and it’s more time consuming to search in the source code when we get into larger blocks of content.

A sample is here: https://sciences.cms.ok.ubc.ca/programs/general-bsc/

This will help us with our work, being able to update or flag content that will need to be revisited. All the highlights would be removed prior to go-live.

[Update: Requested recently, but has been prioritized by IT web team to help IKBSAS in advance of the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Science split. Several websites under the Barber school need to be audited, reviewed, and edited to make sure content is ready ahead of the formal split in July 2020. JS started on working proof of concept started in dev site. JE exploring a plugin that is activated by IT while sites are under development, then deactivated after site launch. Status changed to Active. -SQ]

[Update 2: JE learned there is an existing ‘Mark’ ability in TinyMCE Advanced plugin that we already have installed in the UBCO CMS. Instead of custom development, web team will simply activate/deactivate TinyMCE Advanced upon request. JS dropping development on custom highlighter. Marked complete. -SQ]
